Fishing Tips – The Most Important Fish Catching Tips

No matter what type of fish you enjoy fishing for; there are some simple things that any angler can do to help them catch more fish. In this article, I’m going to discuss some of those fishing tips in the hopes that one or all of them will help you be a more successful angler. These fishing tips have been learned through more than fifty years of combined fishing experience, and are simple yet incredibly effective. Give one or all of them a shot, and see what you think, I promise that you won’t be disappointed.

Before we begin, let me mention that in my opinion fishing is just like anything in life. The more time you invest in it, the more successful you will be. This means that there is no substitute for spending time on the water and spending some time reading things (such as this article). Every little “tidbit” of information that you can add to your repertoire, might be the difference between a trophy and getting “skunked”. That being said, let’s get down to business, shall we?

  • Use Fresh Line – If you fish a lot, and are like me and like to use light line, change your line frequently. “Fresh” line is much more effective than old or heavily used fishing line. Using fresh line makes casting and knot tying a ton easier. Make sure you change your line at least once a month during the heart of fishing season.
  • Pay Attention To Your Hands – Make sure that your hands are free of any unnatural odors. These unnatural odors (such as gasoline residue or smoke) will transfer to your bait and cost you bites. A good tip is to rub your hands in a handful of grass or dirt before baiting up. This will help eliminate any of these odors that might be present.
  • Use Gang Hooks – If you are a live bait angler (especially live worms) then gang hooks should always be employed. Gang hooks arte simply a pair of small hooks tied in tandem, this enabling the angler to present live bait (and especially live worms) in a completely realistic and natural manner. The results can be quite amazing. Presenting your live bait in the most natural way possible makes a HUGE difference in bite rates.

    Use Mother Nature To Your Advantage – If you want to catch more fish you need to use the weather and moon to your advantage as an angler. These two forces of Mother Nature have as much to do with you catching fish as the type of bait or lure you choose to employ. There are simple rules that need to be learned and used that will enable you to be on the water when the fish are the most active. This will make a huge difference in the amount of fish that are caught. My mentor always used the weather and moon to his advantage, and you should as well.

    These simple, yet amazingly helpful and effective tips, will help anyone be a more successful angler. Remember, when it comes to fishing tips, many times the simpler they are the more effective they are. Now employ one or all of these tips sooner, rather than later, and see how many more fish you get to catch.
